No.
Howell = 35 pitches over the last 2 days.
Howell = elite RP. :-L

Hey mweir or other Toronto followers... do we think that Frasor is now out of any potential save opps now that Downs is back? Droppable?

If you have the space, I'd hold onto him. He puts up good numbers for a MR, so he can help keep your ratios down. Plus, now that BJ Ryan is definitely out of the picture, if something happens to Downs again you know its Frasor who will get the call. If you need to drop him for roster space then go for it, but whenever there's been an injury situation I always try to keep holding on to the guy who stepped in during that time, because injuries can flare right back up.

Word is, Downs is definitely not being eased back in. He's the closer from the get-go, so Frasor isnt getting any/many save opps unless another injury happens.

BJ Ryan has earned the team's trust and should be closing again in a matter of days.
